I recently picked up this polish in colour Cake Pop and wanted to post an honest review. You guys know that I love the Essie Gel Couture polish but I wanted to see if this would stand two weeks, as I’m going away for two weeks this summer and didn’t want to have to end up going to the salon to get my nails done. I thought that since I usually get CND Shellac done, this could be comparable but I was wrong.
I’ve tried it twice since purchasing it and I’m honestly not a huge fan. The first time it chipped within two days and I had to take it all off by the third day because it was so badly chipped. I have to admit that I was a little rough on my fingers/nails during that week so I decided to try it again another time. The second time I cured my nails with the LED light that I have and I feel like it did help a little bit, but it still didn’t give me the results I wanted- it definitely won’t last two weeks when I go away this summer. I had to remove it after 4 days.
The only good thing about this polish is the colour. It’s a great pink/neutral with some purple undertones. I would apply it if I needed to have nice nails for a day or two, for an event, but for a lasting manicure, this would not be my first choice.
Here are daily pictures of how it held up.
